Have bulbs where you don’t want them? Use the 5MM No Glow Caps to cover them. The frame we lit required 2 sets of lights, but we ended up with 4 extra bulbs. So, instead of trying to “use them up”, hide them, or cover them with electrical tape, we used the No Glow Caps to cover them.

These caps aren’t just for “extra” bulbs – You can use them to cover any bulbs you don’t want to see – Look at the difference it makes when the lights between the stars are covered.

#2 – Use them to outline or decorate Windows

Use these 5MM Red, White, and Blue Combo String Lights to outline windows, or get creative by spelling words or making your own designs. The Mini Light Adhesive Clips work great for window applications, and allow you to place/secure the lights where you want them. The New updated version of the Mini Light Adhesive Clip will securely hold the 5MM Socket, and will have the adhesive pad attached for easy and quick installation!

#3 – Use them to decorate existing Deck Railings, Structures, or even bushes or trees

What’s better than using what you already have? Wrap these 5MM Red, White, and Blue Combo String Lights around deck railings, or use them to light up pergolas, gazebos, or other outdoor structures. And lighting trees or bushes is not just for Christmas! All summer, show your Patriotic Spirit by threading your favorite patriotic string lights throughout the trees or bushes in your yard.
